Guts Surfboards & Hire
GUTS SURFBOARDS is owned and run by double-Award winning, European professional surfing champion Chris "Guts" Griffiths.
Chris has been surfing for over 35 years on Gower and around the world. Chris caught the surfing bug as a child, surfing his first waves at Llangennith where his grandparents had a caravan.
He started competing in his late teens and managed to amass an impressive array of titles including over a dozen Welsh and seven British titles to go with his two European crowns. He was ranked as highly as 5th in the world at his peak.
Chris is also a very accomplished board builder having been hand shaping boards on Gower for nearly two decades and has shaped boards for many top surfers, including twice world champion Beau Young from Australia.
In recent years Chris has turned his attention to the new surfing discipline that is Stand up Paddle surfing. Chris has taken to this new sport like a duck to water and has already amassed several British titles. Chris was also involved in the first crossing of the Bristol Channel on a Sup too!
Chris opened Guts Surfboards surf shop in 2000 to supply surfing equipment to local surfers. He has over 60 new surfboards and paddleboards in stock. and a great selection of second-hand boards too!
You can rent a board, have one repaired or even get one made for you.
